US ‘freezes funding’ for White Helmets as group’s Douma chem attack claim falls apart

US ‘freezes funding’ for White Helmets as group’s Douma chem attack claim falls apart:

As the reputation of the controversial militant-linked White Helmets continues to crumble, even the US State Department seems to be having second thoughts about supporting the group, reportedly placing a freeze on its funding.

The State Department’s support for the White Helmets is “under active review,”according to a CBS News report. The group reportedly hasn’t received funding in weeks, but neither has it received formal confirmation that Washington’s financial assistance has come to a complete halt. This would mean a significant blow for the group, as the money accounts for about one-third of the White Helmets’ overall funding.

An internal State Department document cited by CBS said that its Near East Bureau needed confirmation from President Donald Trump’s administration by April 15 in order to approve funding for the White Helmets. If that wasn’t received, the department would initiate “shut-down procedures on a rolling basis.”

Online reaction to the report has been mixed, with some continuing to hail the work of the White Helmets. Among them was Samantha Power, the former US ambassador to the UN.

Mad Dog Mattis Threatens Military Action Over Syria Gas Attack Claims, Then Admits “No Evidence”

Mattis Threatens Military Action Over Syria Gas Attack Claims, Then Admits “No Evidence”:

“I don’t have the evidence,” Mattis said. “What I am saying is that other groups on the ground – NGOs, fighters on the ground – have said that sarin has been used, so we are looking for evidence.”

This week the American public was once again bombarded by fresh headlines alleging the Syrian government under President Bashar al-Assad gassed its own people. And in predictable fashion the usual threat of US military force soon followed.

Except of course rather than “alleging” a chemical incident, all the usual suspects from CNN pundits to State Department bureaucrats to Pentagon officials in typical fashion are opting for the simpler “Assad did it” narrative. State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert stated Thursday“Russia is making the wrong choice by not exercising its unique influence. To allow the Syria regime to use chemical weapons against its own people is unconscionable. We will pursue accountability.”


The White Helmets published this photo on Thursday, claiming that its “volunteer was suffocated by the chlorine gas attack”. It appears that this is the “NGO” Defense Secretary Jim Mattis referenced on Friday to say “open sources” say Assad is using chemical weapons.

Nauert’s statement was a repeat of talking points from last week’s chemical attack claims, wherein both she and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ultimately blamed Russia. But like with other recent chemical attack allegations, the claims couldn’t be more vague or poorly sourced, yet was still enough for U.S. officials to issue more direct threats of US military action against Assad.

Interviews With Syrian Civilians Reveal White Helmets And Nusra/al-Qaeda Are The Same Thing:

After having deconstructed the White Helmets’ propaganda narratives and the nature of the organization over a year ago, journalist Vanessa Beeley recently traveled to Syria and uncovered yet more proof that the White Helmets are nothing more than al-Nusra and al-Qaeda members simply acting as the terrorist organizations’ propaganda wing.

After demonstrating clearly that the al-Nusra headquarters and the White Helmets headquarters in Sakhour, East Aleppo were, in actuality, the same location, Beeley was able to talk with numerous Syrian civilians who suffered under Nusra’s control during the time in which the Syrian government had yet to retake and liberate East Aleppo. Beeley asked these civilians about the role of the White Helmets during that time and their answers might shock anyone buying into the propaganda narrative being disseminated by Western corporate media outlets and the poorly made award-“winning” documentary dedicated to them.
